Steve has been a licensed pharmacist for over 50 years. He’s worked at hospitals, nursing homes, and he owned and operated an independent pharmacy for 20 years.

We discuss the origins of the opioid crisis, who are profiting from it,  how those in pain are suffering from the government and corporate medicine’s reponsed to it, and how government intervention into the healthcare market and specifically the War on Drugs, have led to many of the problems we are facing today.
